Description of Better Lighting for Better Sight
It may only take a few simple adaptations in the home to make life easier for an older person or someone with vision loss. Changes in vision that come with aging can affect the ability to see clearly and adjust quickly to changes in lighting, possibly affecting balance and the ability to do everyday activities. These brand new videos, created by the AFB Center on Vision Loss for Senior Site® (www.afb.org/seniorsite), contain simple and easy-to-implement suggestions that can benefit all older people, as well as anyone with a visual impairment.
The right lighting can make all the difference in whether a person can accomplish a particular task or even manage his or her everyday life—particularly for older people or those with vision loss. In fact, people with vision loss may need 3 to 4 times more illumination than people with typical vision. Better Lighting for Better Sight contains information about critical factors that can enhance vision, including different types of lighting, positioning of lighting, contrast sensitivity, and control of glare. It provides suggestions on how to choose the right light for the person and the task.
